tuesday- 3 miles outside
Yesterday morning I got up early and ran outside before Josh had to be at work. Luckily, Josh and I both slept great and didn’t feel tired in the morning from jet lag. However, my run felt sooo sluggish. I haven’t ran in about 2 weeks and UT’s elevation always kills me. I felt like my throat was on fire, but later in the day it felt fine. It’s always hard to get back to running after a break, vacation, or injury. Here’s what always helps me.
It was sprinkling rain,the best kind of run!
1. Getting new music, here are some of my favs
All about the bass-Meghan Trainor
Life of the party-Shawn Mendes
I wanna get better– Bleachers
2. Setting my clothes out the night before and getting it done first thing in the morning.
3. Thinking about how good I’ll feel after I run. I love starting my day with exercise, and telling myself over and over how good it will make me feel always works.
After my run, I did some grocery shopping. Fortunately, my awesome mom stalked our fridge with essentials before we got home on Monday(milk, bread, yogurt, fruit, snacks) so we weren’t starving when we got home or yesterday morning for breakfast. I still needed to get stuff for dinners but it was nice to not have to go grocery shopping the day we got home.
Somehow this ended up in my cart…I may be a little excited for fall(:
Other errands like the bank, getting gas for the car, and Costco were also involved but later in the day. Remember how I said we woke up feeling great? Well the afternoon hit and I felt like a walking zombie! It was nice to have things I had to do so I wouldn’t fall asleep, but it was brutal. I hope this jet lag doesn’t last long ha J’s face says it all…
J helped me decorate Jared’s signs. He and the rest of the family get home from Singapore today and we’re gonna greet him at the airport. Can’t wait for him to meet J after 2 years! I’ll have those pics up tomorrow and I’m hoping they’ll be nicer. Sorry I’ve been lazy about using my camera!
